3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Pelt Trader. Pours a dull orange with a very creamy, solid head which lasts the whole beer. Nose is very tropical and typical Nelson Sauv hops. Very in your face - tangerine, peach, citrus, grape. Taste is that typical Nelson Sauv tropical citrus burst - tangerine, apricot, passionfruit, lychee. Creamy mouth feel with light bitter sweet notes on the finish. Solid

Cask at the Evening Star, Brighton. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is sweet tangerine, orange, yeasty dough, white grape, cooked apple and tinned peach. The taste is crisp, white grape, mandarin, tangerine, bitter-sweet aspect, straw and elderflower with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Tasty and rather drinkable APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 13/05/13. A golden beer with a white head and lace. Noticeable NS hops with a biscuity note. However the expected gooseberry or sauvignon notes just don’t shine and instead it’s just a competent relatively tasty golden ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Half pint from cask at the Cask Pub and Kitchen.
Pours a hazy golden colour with a creamy white head.
Smells very hoppy and fresh. Floral, grassy and fruity.
Tastes extremely hoppy, but with those balanced fruit and floral NZ hops. Malt backbone balancing it all out.
Overall a really great beer - i love it!

Aroma: Boiled vegetables, vine tomato and straw.
Appearance: Hazy golden body with a pillowy white head. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing.
Taste: Grassy and vinous. Bitter finish.
Palate: Medium body with an oily texture, Average carbonation.
Overall: A decent American Pale Ale, but I’m not sure if I like the Nelson Sauvin hop.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Craft Beer. Bright amber colour. Huge hop aroma, sweet and fruity, clementines or tangerines or some such. Well balanced and very drinkable, pleasantly hoppy but not ridiculously so, bittersweet with juicy fruits and a long dry finish. Delicious.
